Elle Goes to the Hair Fair

Hair-Fair-Exile_Leena

Hello Beautiful People! As our beloved Gogo mentioned this past weekend in her blog post titled “Summertime” the annual Hair Fair event launched on June 25th. For my contribution to promoting this wonderful event, I picked out three of my favorite Hairdos to feature in today’s post. First up is the oh, so, sublime Leena from Exile. I have to say, Kavar’s textures are some of the best on the grid; and as an ADDED BONUS, this Do is FREE…Yes Ladies and Gents, FREE!

Elle is trying her best to keep up with blogging – well her human is at least. But, alas, she got the covids (yes, I am vaxed) and got a bit behind with things. The one thing that made her human happy during the brief times she was able to log in was being able to dress her dolly, Elle, and decorate her new Beach Stilt and one of the wave sims that was released recently…YAY!

Elle as a Fashionista Elf

Thoughtful-Elf
Thoughtful Elf

Elle the Elf – has a nice ring to it, eh? I used to Role Play quite a bit of Second Life before my long hiatus. As of late, I have thought about dipping my toe back into the Role Play pool. But this time I want it to be ultra fantasy – high fantasy even. I want to immerse myself in a world of elves, faes, magical beings, etc, and so on. You might wonder, where did all this elven inspiration come from? Well, my friends, it came in the form of the somewhat off-beat Lelutka release knowns as “Prim”.

I <3 SL Skins – Elle's Noob Days continue….

Through-a-Screen-Door
Just an Irrelevant Pretty Picture

My return to Second Life has been, overall, uncomplicated. I logged in, got addicted to Linden Homes, and of course, I shopped. I have to say that I am a bit disappointed in the fashion choices in Second Life: So-Many-Outfits-Look-Exactly-The-Same. I spent many an hour visiting the latest events attempting to find that perfect new outfit. Alas, 75% of the time, my event shopping resulted in disappointment. I don’t know if it’s the demos the designers decide to use or if the efforts are just – bad. The pattern continues – I teleport to the current “Event Du Jour,” and an advert catches my eye. With the flick of my mouse, I would click that demo prim faster than you could say “Lindens.” Then, excitedly I would port home to one of my, err, seven Linden Homes and gleefully try the demo, and more often than not, the demo unveiling would reveal a horrible plastic-looking shirt with no depth or a skirt that was just..sad. But…not the Skin featured in the plethora of events: Oh My…Not the Skin.

Ahh….To Be an SL Noob Again

Ice-Cream-Shop

Hello Second Life! Elle Couerblanc here, renoobed and restyled. It’s been about 5 years maybe (??) since I did any sort of Second Life blogging, photos and well anything besides decorating whatever house I am living in at the moment. Overall, I have been really gone, except for log in spurts here and there, for about four years. But something about SL has intrigued me this time around.

Do you ever like not being reachable?? I know I do!

Who's Texting Me Now!

I am horrible about leaving my phone at home – like really horrible.  This happened twice last week and a coworker of mine could not get why I really didn’t care!  Sometimes being without a phone is freeing: No obsessive checking of social media or the news and no unwanted phone calls. Just…quiet.

Second Life is like that for me at times as well.  You see I have this super secret alt that nobody knows – in fact she is still dressed in her noob clothes!  So for those days when all I want to do is roam around looking at pretty places, I log her in.  Peace and quiet and pretty pictures is all we need at times.

Have a great Second Life day today!
